For the Win!

“Hello! How’d you survive the snowstorm?” greeted Shelly, as she began to ring up my grocery purchases.
We hadn’t seen each other in a while, so we exchanged stories about our winters, the height of snow on our roofs, how we’ve been keeping sane, how MisterM and I should’ve stayed in Texas and Mexico a little longer :)).
Usually, I gift the cashiers their favorite bar, but this time…
“Could you pick me out a lottery ticket?” I asked Shelly.
“Any particular one?”
“You decide.” I replied.
After I paid for everything, I pushed the lottery ticket towards her, “This is for you, if you are able to receive it.”
Shelly got this shocked look on her face (it was one of those $5 tickets) and said, “I didn’t think this was for me!”
I smiled and requested, “If you win, how about taking me out for lunch?”
That’s the funny thing about kindness, I already feel like a winner, lunch or not! And I’m pretty sure Shelly did too :)).
